HBO’s Sharp Objects Get A Trailer

Amy Adams stars in the new HBO series, Sharp Objects coming to the small screen in July. Here’s the first full trailer for mini series based on Gillian Flynn’s novel. 

Based on the book of the same name, Adams plays a reporter Camille Preaker from a small town who has recently come out of a brief stay at a psychological hospital and must return home to cover a violent double murder of two girls. Pretty light subject matter as you can see…

From what we can see in the trailer, Camille is battling her own demons, her family as well as trying to uncover the truth of what happened. Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée who comes fresh off the set of Big Little Lies, he’s worked Flynn plus a number of other writers to bring all eight episodes to the small screen.

The limited series will air next month on HBO for America, so far no plans to release this in the UK but hopefully this will change. Patricia Clarkson also star as Camille’s mother and Chris Messina as Richard Willis, another detective interested in the case.

Keep. It. Reel.

Hanging in there: The Walking Dead season 7

The Walking Dead is notorious for ending its seasons on a cliff hanger. Whether it’s who is killed, who survives, what will happen when they get somewhere or if Daryl dies or not. (Don’t forget to riot if he does!) Well, with season 7 on its way, and solving the “who did Negan kill” mystery, creator Robert Kirkman has hinted that season 7 may not end in such a way.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kirkman said, “A lot of the responses were like, ‘Ah, these jerks trying to pull one over on us,’ and it’s like, ‘No. It’s all done in an effort to keep you entertained,’” Kirkman said. “I think as a creative person I have to acknowledge that all responses are valid, so I definitely have to take note that there’s a seemingly significant portion of the audience that wasn’t happy with that direction. So in that respect, I think everyone on ‘The Walking Dead’ creative team has taken note of that, and I don’t know that I would expect a similar cliffhanger at the end of season 7,” he added. “We love the fan base, we love the audience and so if you didn’t like this one, you’ll like the next one.”

So there you have it, I suspect he may be telling porkies just because this isn’t always the way with this show. But we’ll have to wait and see about that. The Walking Dead returns to our small screens this October.

Keep. It. Reel.

The Collection

The Collection

The (not quite) epic collection of DVDs I currently own which I have anally retentively put in alphabetical order. It helps when trying to find a specific film despite the mocking I have taken from friends of mine. Beside the obvious ones including the Hitchcock collection and Heroes, to name a few, what other films and TV shows can you spot? Any of your favourites? Anything which you think should be put into a guilty pleasure pile for all eternity? Try and list a few at the bottom. Although this is most probably easier than I think, at least for those of you who can read sideways. Happy guessing!
